Easy to use, this little unit did everything I asked of it. Converted film for my brothers as well so everyone was happy. I'd recommend it as value for money given the ruinous prices some commercial outlets charge.

The unit is plug-n-play. It's easy to install the film, input your settings, and push the "play" button. The digital results of my films have been great so far.

It's a little difficult to align frames! Otherwise, it does an excellent job!

Easy to use and makes good quality files ready for future editing. Sets up quickly and it will run while you do other things.

This Magnasonic product is so easy to use and I am so enjoying converting the 8mm to digital to share with the rest of my family, I never realized how fragile the old film was getting but even when it breaks it is so easy to pick up wher it left off and continue transferring. I highly recommend this product to anyone with old Brownie movies

Very please with the FS81. Have scanned approximately my old home movie Super 8 42 films so far. A mix of 3 & 4 inch reels and my only 7" reel. Output satisfactory; do some minor editing and cleanup using Adobe Elements.

I have only had the machine for 3 weeks and it has been awesome. i wasn't sure how much I was going to do, however after doing 3 reels for a customer, they were so pleased they brought me 35 more to do and have passed my name on and I am getting more calls already.
Thank you for very much for a great product.

I was a bit skeptical at first but it only took one movie to get the hang of using the scanner. I have transferred over 2,000 ft of 8mm film so far and am getting great results. I wish you made a 16mm version of this (with sound) so I could get those transferred as well. Great piece of equipment and I am enjoying the process.

The scanner is fairly easy to use, does a good job converting to MP4 format. Would be nice if the process to rewind would not require switching reels. Also, the TV output display: at least on my TV display the picture is too large for the TV and is therefor cut off at the bottom, so have to use the built in display.

It works better with 8mm film. I cannot believe I used super 8 film that had a low silver halide count. The higher the better. The only problem I encountered was my editing skills from 1983!!

I received the scanner rapidly, at no shipping cost. I had many reels of films dating from 1960, both 8mm and Super 8 mm. Very easy to operate. Much satisfied with the product.

Brian B February 15, 2021 British Columbia, Canada

I had over 3000 feet of 8mm film to convert to digital files using the film scanner. It takes about 30 minutes to scan a 50 foot length of film so it took quite awhile. Most of my film is on 7" reels so once the conversion started I was able to leave it and just check it periodically. The 7" reels take about 4.5 hours to scan. The film I had was 40 to 60 years old. It did an amazing job. I am completely satisfied. Very easy to use.

Worked really well. A faster rewind speed would be better. overall really happy with the unit. Converted 41 movies from 3" to 7" without a hitch.

I received the product very fast, at no shipping cost! The scanner is simple to operate. Not expensive if I take into account the number of old films to digitize. The final result is great!
